"The Purity Myth" is now a movie!

The movie version of Jessica Valenti's great book "The Purity Myth" just came out and, like the book, it's a great full-frontal assault on abstinence-until-marriage, purity balls and the general anti-feminist stance championed by the religious right. The trailer, above, is chock-full of  archival clips from news, old educational films and modern-day abstinence videos.

"The Purity Myth" is being marketed exclusively to the educational market for now, so the price is steep, but you can watch a preview on the website.

We love Jessica's work here at HQ, and we're really glad the interview we did with her is a big part of the abstinence segment of our own film-in-progress.
